Oh my goodness! Two comics in a week? THE PROPHECY IS COMING TRUE!

As promised, here's this week's second comic. The goal is to publish one more this week - and it's an important one because it will be the LAST APPEARANCE of Charlie and Jimmy. Get your tissues ready, true believers. It's gonna be a weeper!

Originally, there wasn't going to be much of a punchline to this comic. As I conceived it, the passage of time and the parking lot getting darker was going to be the joke. But the more I thought about it, the more I thought how thirsty Tom was probably getting as he meticulously poured out the contents of a giant beverage. So I'm glad I took the extra 43 seconds to think it through. I believe the comic is better for it.

Not much else to tell at this time except to expect a third comic this week and hopefully two next week. My birthday is this Friday and that kicks off a five-day stretch of social commitments (I also think there's some kind of holiday in there?) But one of the comics is Christmas themed, so I'd really like that to go live next Tuesday.

For the moment, it looks like the very last Theater Hopper comic will land smack-dab on Monday, December 31.

Thanks again for checking in on these last few comics as I scramble toward the finish line. I've you'd like to share it with your friends on your Facebooks or ya' Twittahz, that would be cool.

Take it easy. See you in a couple of days!
